Pantera’s Rex Brown was recently interviewed by Loudwire, and was asked about how close Pantera have come to reuniting. He simply responded by saying “close”.
Brown further added:
“Well, I just speak for myself. I mean, I’d love to get out there and play those songs again. And if everybody else was willing to do it… You know, I think the whole thing would be get us all in a room, throw some water on it and get that water underneath the bridge all settled and make some music again. But it would be different. We’d be missing something. And that’s the big ugh. I’m just being as honest as I can. It would be different.”
“I’d do anything to have that back—family and all that kind of stuff. I never say ‘never’ on that kind of thing, and I’m tired of saying, you know, ‘hell freezes over,’ or whatever, but at the same time, life is getting too short and you never know… But I’m not saying there’s been any talks at all.
Would I do it? Phillip, I just saw Phil not long ago. We’re all doing our own things… I’d get up there and do it for fucking nothing.”
Fans have been wanting a reunion for a long time, but with Dimebag’s tragic death and the conflict between Phil Anselmo and Vinnie Paul it is hard to imagine it will ever happen. However, if it does happen, Zakk Wylde is expected to fill in on guitar.
